On Easter night when Donovan McNabb found out he was traded to the Washington Redskins, he along with the Redskins faithful wondered what he may have left to contribute or achieve. We now know that McNabb has taken over this team, and is leader on offense. He has shown that he intends to be the locker room leader from day one, and has shown it through his actions and willingness to workout with his team. Thought he does not have a long term deal that will essentially allow him to end his career here, he feels confident that this is the place where he will finally reach the pinnacle of success and win his elusive Super Bowl Ring. To further elaborate Terry Lofton of the SportsBusinessJournal.com writes:
He’s likely to be doing local broadcast work in D.C., and since D.C. is the center of the American political universe, McNabb is pursuing opportunities there as well, including discussions with the White House regarding involvement in Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move youth initiative. McNabb will serve as ambassador for the Redskins’ local version of the NFL’s Play 60 youth initiative.
“Donovan is just getting started,” said Andrew Stroth, McNabb’s business adviser, “but he wants to win a Super Bowl with the Redskins, partner with corporations committed to serving the community, and work with the Obama administration.”
To McNabb I wish him well for these endevours, but he will soon realize that if he wins his future plans may come easier than previously thought. If he is a bust, then DC Mayor may still be an opportunity.
